PASADENA, CALIF. (February 12, 2019) - America is a burial ground for secrets of our past. Artifacts and strange finds offer opportunities to discover a history of our country that we don't know. Forensic geologist Scott Wolter believes that some of the history we've been taught is wrong and he is on a mission to prove it. Now, Travel Channel is breathing new life into 'America Unearthed,' updating the format for its new network home and allowing Wolter to continue his quest to establish what really happened and set the historic record straight.

Wolter has made his life's work out of diving into our distant past looking for hidden truths that some people have gone to great lengths to cover up. And now it is time to solve some of America's real cold cases, once and for all. Travel Channel has acquired the previous three seasons comprising 39 episodes and the network will premiere a fourth season with 10 new one-hour episodes this summer.

'Travel Channel is the perfect new home for this show,' said Wolter. 'The series has always been known for great storytelling, cutting-edge science and beautiful cinematography, but now my adventures are going to be epic.'

'With a serious built-in fanbase, Scott is ready to get to the bottom of a whole new batch of mysteries and build on the success of the earlier seasons,' said Jane Latman, general manager, Travel Channel. 'Adding 'America Unearthed' to the Travel Channel slate is sure to be a crowd-pleaser and ratings driver.'

'America Unearthed' is produced by Committee Films for Travel Channel. For Committee Films, the executive producers are Andy Awes and Maria Awes. For Travel Channel, the executive producer is Daniel A. Schwartz, Jane Latman is general manager and Henry Schleiff is group president of Investigation Discovery, Travel Channel, American Heroes Channel and Destination America.

ABOUT SCOTT WOLTER

Scott F. Wolter is a forensic geologist and television host. He is known best as the host of the series 'America Unearthed.' Wolter is based out of Minnesota, where he is the founder and president of American Petrographic Services and the inventor of Archaeopetrography (a process used to date and understand the origins of inscribed stone artifacts). In addition to investigating and dating ancient artifacts, Wolter was involved in analyzing fire damage to the concrete at the Pentagon after the September 11th terrorist attacks and has even helped the Las Vegas police investigate a homicide where a victim was found buried in concrete. His first television appearance was as a Kensington rune stone expert on the documentary 'Holy Grail in America,' which indirectly resulted in Wolter hosting 'America Unearthed.' Wolter is also the author of several books on geology, the Knights Templar and theories related to pre-Columbian contact.
